Yesterday I upgraded my workstation, a Dell Optiplex 755, to Fedora Core 11. I downloaded the net install CD iso and burned it to disk. The installation was super easy. I am a big fan of mjmwired.net and I use his install guide.
The part that pleased me much was that the dual screen problems seem to be sorted out. I have two Dell 17 inch LCD monitors running on an ATI card at 1280X1024. Using the Gnome Display Preferences app I was able to configure my dual screen system in a few second.
Quite pretty out of the box. Here is a screen shot: Click the thumb to see a bigger version.
What Didn’t Work
*Evolution Exchange MAPI – The new project to get evolution to sync better with Exchange servers. I was hopeful but alas I get an error. Maybe in time.
*Monodevelop for VB.NET
When installing Monodevelop, if you want to compile asp.net projects you will need several packages:
# yum list mono*
You must include mono-basic to get the vbnc compiler. This package is not a dependency of monodevelop.
